Living Street Call Out

You may have noticed an absence of meetings and suggestions from Living Streets Hamilton recently.

Because of increased pressure of work and some family matters that take priority at the moment, I'd like to ask whether you think we can keep the group going with a more collaborative approach. It's been fun organising our annual spring strolls, and I'm sure there are lots more places we can explore together or revisit. Also, it's been a worthwhile task presenting submissions to local and regional government to try to keep pedestrian safety and the value of pedestrian-friendly environments in the awareness of those who hold the purse strings.

If you think these things are worth persisting with, and even better, if you've got ideas for other things the group can do, or better ways of doing them, it would be great to hear from you.

If we can set up something where lots of people do a little bit and get together occasionally to discuss what new directions the group can go in, it would be easy for everyone.

 

If you do have time, or ideas, or anything else, please email me. In case we get enough answers to warrant a get-together, either by email or in person, can you indicate whether you'd be happy to have your email address circulated to other like-minded members who have also responded? My email is  judy.c.mcdonald@gmail.com

Many thanks for your interest so far, and here's hoping we can keep Living Streets walking happily on into the future!

 

Waikato Botanical Society AGM

Our AGM is on next Wednesday night the 18th at the University in S block.

We will start with refreshments at 5:30 then do the AGM and this will be followed by a talk on the flora of Chile by Chris Lusk.

Chris was recently in Chile for the Southern Connection conference, and took the opportunity to get reacquainted with the plants, landscapes and culture of Chile. Chris has previously spent a number of years living and working in Chile, researching vegetation dynamics.

Please send your nominations for president, secretary, treasurer, webmaster, committee to Kris Kramer-Walter, secretary@waikatobotsoc.org.nz.

The job of being on the committee is not onerous. We have about 2 - 3 meetings a year.

Any questions please email km8j1s@gmail.com

 

Toah-NNest Regional Hui 2016 Hamilton 3 June

FREE sexual violence prevention and intervention professional development opportunity

This is a TOAH-NNEST Tauiwi Caucus initiative for our members. We also invite all those working in the sexual violence specialist sector to join us for a day of networking and a workshop. These hui are for everyone, whether your focus is prevention, survivor services or the treatment of harmful sexual behaviour.

We have two great workshops:

Ending Sexual Violence Together

This workshop will provide a space to reflect on and extend how we think about stopping sexual violence, as individuals and collectively

We will introduce a 12 point prevention matrix as a tool to think about how we can collectively end sexual violence.

• Share knowledge and projects with others doing the work.

• Break down misconceptions about sexual abuse and find ways to prevent sexual violence through all areas of your work.

Discussions facilitated by Rachel Fabish (TOAH-NNEST), Melanie Calvesbert (Sexual Abuse HELP Foundation Wellington) and Rachel Harrison (CAPS Hauraki)

 

Challenging Assumptions: perspective from minority communities

This interactive workshop will allow conference attendees to hear perspectives of service use from within minority communities

We will be looking particularly at questions of:

• How can I be more inclusive when I deal with clients?

• How can our agencies be more inclusive?

• Common traps and misconceptions

• Perspectives on preventing sexual violence

Discussions will be facilitated by Anjum Rahman and Rebecca Fraser, organisers of Campaign for Consent Hamilton and members of Taku Manawa Kirikiriroa, Hamilton's Human Rights Network.
